Top 5 Batsmen With Most Sixes In IPL

Chris Gayle

A West Indian icon, Chris Gayle, has hit the most sixes (357) in 140 matches. Gayle is a natural southpaw who enjoys hitting every ball over the fence.

Almost every bowler is terrified of Gayle’s powerful striking. In 2013, the “Universal Boss” struck a six of 119 meters, the longest in his IPL history.
